2014

Well, here it is folks, 2014. Lots of new prospects on the horizon for this new year. In 2013 I gave up caffeine, I drink gallons of water now. Oh how I miss my high octane soda!!

In the year of 2014 I am going to give up food. Not all food but the bad food I have been eating for the past year. Mainly sugar. You see,  I am a sugar addict. I don't do drugs just sugar and it controls my life. Here is the juxtaposition I am in, for those of you that know me, I don't like being controlled but I allow sugar to control me thus the addition.

Now, I do realize that this is not going to be an overnight process. It will take a certain degree of time to break the sugar cycle I have allowed myself to get into. My goal is that by this time next year that I have conquered the sugar beast and I am eating better. Who knows I might drop a pound or two in the process. The biggest hurdle for me to overcome the sugar dependence is eliminating the daily rationalizations I have for dripping into the sugar bowl. Time and perseverance is my strongest benefactor.

I was born in an odd year so maybe an even year will prove to a positive force in my life. I have always been partial to even numbers as I never knew what to do with the odd one left over. On side note, this past birthday has a been a particularly hard one for me to accept. I am not sure why as I have never been worried about my age, but this one really hit me hard. It must be the fact that aging does happen and I am not the wild 20 year old I once was; that I could go out dance and flirt and feel good about myself. Time does not stand still.......

I don't believe in new year resolutions because they just set you up to fail. I don't make them, I make attainable goals. Therefore if I can give up all of the other bad habits I had (except cussing), I can give up sugar. Don't wish me luck, wish me support!!
